Specialized Comp Road Shoes
Well, after lots of deliberation, reading reviews here and on roadbikereview.com, looking at the MFR's website, and trying them on at a LBS, I decided to order the Specialized 05' Comp Road Shoes from Specialized.com. Out of the 6 bike shops in the Lou metro area, only 2 carry the Specialized stuff. They didn't have my exact size, but one half size up .... and "MAN WERE THEY COMFORTABLE"!
The most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever tried. However, to be honest ... the Sport shoes, Comps, Comp Carbons, and Pro Carbons were ALL "very" comfortable. Wow! I'm done with my Shimano shoes.
I was actually kind of bummed and put off by the fact that you HAVE to pay retail for Specialized items ... given they don't sell online (for the most part), etc. And, I waited 2 weeks watching eBay and no luck for shoes in my size that I would want.
Hopefully, they will fit perfectly and I'll have many comfy miles ahead of me when they arrive and I get out and ride.
Anyone else with these or similar shoes from Specialized?
